"The vest is like a great big hug and helps to calm down her overactive sensory system. It helps her with sensory stimulus, as well as attention span." - Cathy, Sellersville, PA

  • Our Most Popular Vest is Also Our Favorite

    Our founder and occupational therapist Aviva couldn’t find a weighted compression vest for kids, so she designed her own. This vest was our first Fun and Function product and it’s still one of our top sellers. Kids, parents, teachers and therapists love this vest because it’s comfy, easy to use and and helps kids quickly calm and focus.

    The vest is like a big wearable hug that provides steady proprioceptive input (body awareness) with deep pressure and balanced weight. The effect is so gentle, calming and reassuring, kids even ask to wear it.

    • Lightning-fast to put on, take off and adjust by adding or removing weight
    • For kids and adults on the autism spectrum and those with hyperactivity or sensory processing disorder 
    • Use it any time you need extra focus or to satisfy the wiggles
    • Made by Fun and Function
    • Includes weights (see details tab) 
    • Age 18 months - Adult

     

    Getting Started

    Vests include two 1/2 lb. weights and four 1/4 lb. weights for a total of 2 lbs. of weights. Additional weights sold separately (see accessories tab). Adult supervision required.

    • Made of mesh and comfy neoprene that provides extra stretch and compression
    • Easy-on, hook and loop closures on sides and shoulders
    • X-Small vest holds up to 4 lbs., Small vest holds up to 5 lbs., Medium vest holds up to 9 lbs. Ask your occupational therapist about weights and wear times for best results. Weights should be carefully and gradually adjusted for each person's needs. (5% of total body weight is a common standard. The total should never exceed 10-15% of total body weight.)
    • Remove weights before washing.
    • Machine wash. Hang dry. 

  • Great Big Hug!

    Weighted Compression Vest with Dolphin Graphic
    My daughter has this vest (minus the picture), and it has worked so well for her! The velcro allows it to be adjustable and comfortable. It's great that the weights are spaced out within the body of the vest to allow for even pressure. We have seen such great improvement in areas that are challenging for her.

    Love the Dolphin Vest!
    I love the dolphin vest. Got it for my daughter and she loves wearing her. It gives her the hug she craves and i can see that she feels more 'grounded' when she wears it. I'm very impressed with how well it's made - it's extremely durable. I highly recommend it!!
